On 1 and 2 December, TP Organics will organise the Organic Innovation Days in Brussels. One of the main aims of the event is to demonstrate the innovation potential of the organic food and farming sector. TP Organics therefore launches a call challenging farmers, researchers and companies to propose innovative solutions to one of the following needs of the organic sector:

1. Innovative technologies for pest management in organic cropping systems

2. New organic food processing concepts and technologies

3. New business models of value addition at the local level

These are three priority topics identified by the TP Organics Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda. A full description of the needs can be found on the TP Organics website (www.tporganics.eu). After a pre-selection of the submitted innovations by the TP Organics Secretariat, a TP Organics member will be asked to select the most promising one.

The proposer of the selected innovation will be invited to present it at the Organic Innovation Days. A lump sum will be provided to cover travel costs. All innovations submitted will be promoted through the website of TP Organics. Send your innovation to info@tporganics.eu by 6 September 2015 with the subject: “Innovation submission”
